Halloween is on its way, and the party invites are piling up. No matter how (or where) you spend this spooky holiday, you’re going to want to dress the part. And by “dress the part,” we clearly mean rock a couple costume for you and your plus one that properly relays what a killer pair you make.

Fortunately for you, 2018 proved to be a year full of inspiration for couple costume ideas — from blockbuster movies to major pop culture moments. Dreaming of Jason Momoa? His Aquaman and sea queen Mera could be just the costume for you and your significant other.

If not, though, we found five other stellar couple costumes on Amazon that will surely make y’all the toast of any Halloween shindig you attend.

So, why not give the good people a preview of the aquatic glory to come? These costumes should do the trick. (Aquaman on Amazon, $86.06; Mera on Amazon, $59.99)
